Graduations

When your event requires some pomp and circumstance, the Ambridge Event Center is able to oblige.  The Ambridge Ballroom is perfect for stately affairs.  With soaring 16 foot ceilings, state of the art audio visual systems, seating for more than 600, and convenient central location, you have found the ideal graduation ceremony venue.  Our ample side rooms provide space to change and prepare while your guests mill about the lobby and get settled into the Ballroom.  A simple stage, colored lighting and wood-paneled walls are a gracious backdrop for a ceremonial launch.

Our Ambridge Ballroom comes equipped with a high-powered LCD projector and 12-foot screen.  We have alternate set-ups with two projectors and screens on the East wall.  With cordless hand-held and lavalier mics, we can handle most sounds requirements for speaking.  Our customizable colored lighting dancing on white ceiling swags adds a festive air to the space.

Toast the graduates afterwards with tasty treats from our full-service kitchen; delicious fresh–baked cookies, elegant hors d’oeuvres, our favorite Portland Punch, coffee, tea or even champagne.  With many spaces to choose from, we can accommodate banquets, cocktail parties or a dance to round out the day.

Allow our event planners to help you with all the details to make your graduation event a success.

Testimonials, General

It’s more than just renting space, the staff at the Ambridge Center provides an old fashioned hospitality that says, “welcome to our home.”
The space works really well for the 250 people we need to accommodate for each event. The location is central and there’s plenty of parking.

They have large spaces for sales meetings and  food shows plus smaller breakout rooms, and this combination works very well for us.

The Ambridge facility is beautiful, and it’s quieter than a hotel where people are coming and going all the time.

I’ve seen my fair share of ballrooms and big meeting spaces, but this is the first time I remember actually being impressed with one. Highly recommended.
I can’t say enough good things about Ambridge. Their staff are uniformly excellent — friendly and responsive to all of our requests. It’s close to mass transport, and their parking options are very popular with our clients.
Their customer service is fantastic, and the price point is awesome! Other venues nickel-and-dime you – not Ambridge.

They served a plated meal of salmon, steak, and ravioli. It was all delicious. Would definitely recommend this place.

The people who attend our career fairs at Ambridge comment that it’s a good-looking venue and a very convenient location. When I find a venue like Ambridge that I like, I stick with it!
The conference rooms are comfortable and I love that most of them have windows which let in natural light, a feature which is oftentimes missing in hotel conference centers.
